Saved by the Bell: The Complete Collection DVD Set #Giveaway! (U.S.) Ends 9/30





Relive the laughter, lessons and love with Zack and his friends
in this 16-disc collector's set, featuring every episode from 
'Good Morning, Miss Bliss' to 'The College Years', 
and it's available today for pre-order, at!

Missing your favorite pals from Bayside High? It's alright, 'cause you're SAVED BY THE BELL! On October 2nd, 2018, Shout! Factory invites TV aficionados to a very special class reunion with the 16-disc collector's release of Saved by the Bell: The Complete Collection, a "Max-ed" out, completist's DVD set of the iconic and addictive '90s Saturday morning sitcom.

Set in the fictional town of Palisades, California and in the hallways of Bayside High, the breezy adventures of Zack Morris (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) and his friends -- Kelly Kapowski (Tiffani-Amber Thiessen), A.C. Slater (Mario Lopez), Jessie Myrtle Spano (Elizabeth Berkley), Lisa Turtle (Lark Voorhies), and Samuel "Screech" Powers (Dustin Diamond) -- were a cultural touchstone for a generation of teens, changing teen programming forever and launching the careers of its break-out stars. Now, home audiences can relive the laughter, lessons, and love all over again with this loaded set containing more than 46 incredible hours of Bayside bliss, including every episode from 1988's "Good Morning, Miss Bliss" which became "Saved By the Bell: The Junior High Years" and the fan-favorite "Saved by the Bell" to "Saved By the Bell: The College Years" and the two feature-length TV movies that followed. The TV DVD archivists at Shout! Factory are hard at work on exclusive bonus features, and they will be announced at a future date.

From 1989 to 1993, for a generation of TV viewers, "Saved by the Bell" was the show that perfectly echoed their lives in middle school and high school. Originally titled "Good Morning, Miss Bliss" with Hayley Mills in the title role, the first thirteen episodes of the series featured Zack, Screech, Lisa and Mr. Belding, and was based at John F. Kennedy Junior High in Indianapolis. Following its cancellation, NBC retooled the show as "Saved by the Bell" and the rest is history...and math, and science, and... And, across 86 glorious episodes, audiences followed the memorable experiences and adventures of Zack and the gang. And, following graduation, Zack, Kelly, Slater and Screech enrolled at California University where the successful franchise could matriculate with the prime-time sitcom, "Saved by the Bell: The College Years". The series finally wrapped with two feature-length, prime time TV movies, "Hawaiian Style", which brought the Bayside bunch to the Big Island for a wacky Waikiki adventure and "Wedding in Las Vegas", which saw the on-again, off-again lovebirds Zack and Kelly make their relationship official on a day the gang will never forget.

From JFK Junior High to Cal U, Miss Bliss to Mr. Belding, Malibu Sands to Hawaii, and dance contests to "dearly beloved", the Saved by the Bell megaset immortalizes a landmark teen TV show that still resonates with its die-hard fans around the world. Fans, friends, jocks, and nerds --ask not for whom The Bell tolls ... it tolls for thee!

Another Time - Movie Review! Coming to Theaters and On Demand Tomorrow, September 14th! #AnotherTime

DIRECTED BY: Thomas Hennessy
WRITTEN BY: Thomas Hennessy, Scott Ryann Kennard
CAST: Justin Hartley, Arielle Kebbel, James Kyson, Chrishell Stause, Mark Valley, Jake McLaughlin, Alan Pietruszewski, Tucker Smallwood
GENRE: Romance, Independent, Sci-Fi, Comedy
DISTRIBUTOR: Gravitas Ventures

Justin Hartley ("This Is Us") stars in this thrilling romance about a man who travels back in time for a chance at love. Along the way, he meets Ally (Arielle Kebbel, Fifty Shades Freed) who might be the love he's been searching for. The film also stars, Chrishell Stause (“The Young and the Restless”), James Kyson (“Preacher”), and was written and directed by Thomas Hennessy (What We Can’t Have).

My Review:
Erik (Justin Hartley) has to work with Julia (Arielle Kebbel) on a project. They have to work overtime to get it put together because it's due in a week. He defines success as what he's doing for his job, working in accounting, helping people set up their retirement funds. Julia sees success as what a person does to impact and change the world. Erik starts to fall for Julia, but she's got a boyfriend. Erik tried to plead to Julia that they needed to be together, but it didn't work. He's watching TV, and they started talking about time travel. So he goes looking for the professor, Dr. Joseph Goyer, who was talking about his theories on time travel.

Will Erik get to travel back in time so that he can meet Julie before her boyfriend does? Will he somehow win Julia's heart? Watch "Another Time" to see what happens. Justin Hartley is also the executive producer!

Disclosure: I received a private link to screen the movie, "Another Time," in exchange for my review and post. No other compensation was exchanged or received.

My Review:
I've been watching The Big Bang Theory since the TV show began. I've watched Penny and Leonard's relationship grow. I've watched Sheldon fall in love with Amy, and get married. I've enjoyed the relationship and marriage, and now they have children, of Howard and Bernadette. The Big Bang Theory will be entering its twelfth and final season this fall. I will really miss watching their stories evolve when it's gone. The Big Bang Theory is a great show for tweens and teens too, as it discusses life in general, and teaches them that even if your not popular, you can still grow up to have friends, get married and more! Once of my favorite scenes in the TV show is when Mark Hamill was in the episode when Sheldon and Amy got married!
